The UK's number one site for for unusual gifts
If you're one of those that likes to walk around with their tea or coffee, or you have a long way to walk back to your desk then this is for you. In simple terms the SpillNot 'absorbs' the inertia which means the liquid within your mug stays in place.
The physics behind this unusual coffee holder is that the liquid does not spill or slosh in the cup and the cup does not tend to slide on the SpillNot as it is carried, even if it is swung all around. Why not? The answer is that the loop handle (let’s think of it as a ‘thread’) is very flexible and cannot deliver a lateral acceleration to the cup (because it has no ‘sheer strength’), which is what usually makes liquid spill from an open container that is not tipped.

Crappy name... but it certainly lives up to its name! We may have had a few little spills as we tested it’s capability of defying physics. Overall, it’s been brilliant. A great addition to the home not just for being incredibly practical, but also an impressive thing to show guests

We like a cuppa in the morning in our camper van and the spillnots can be hung from bungee straps hooked to make a loop from a shelf above our beds.
Slight rocking movement of the van is not a problem and I just have to be careful not to flick the duvet to high when getting back into bed. Mug of tea then hangs conveniently in front of us.

I shake like a leaf in a gale, usually I only half fill my mug, and still manage to spill it taking it 3 metres to my chair, but now the mug is almost full and no messy floor! Very happy, well worth the price for less cleaning!
